...the Lion of the Blues. Another of the blues greats has gone to the great gig in the sky
...lost yet another cricket final. Even though this one didn't end up as a 50 over game, rain reducing it to a T20 bash, they still couldn't help themselves from choking.
...to this. Tony Soprano from “The Sopranos”. One of my favourite quotes from one of my favourite TV shows.
...all his fault. He did a pretty good job for a tactically limited manager who was extremely restricted by the limited way English football, footballers and top flight managers look down at the Under-21 set up.
...documentary. Watch the BBC's Operation Snow Tiger, it's all there, everything you shouldn't do to make a watchable TV programme about animals in the wild.
...were trying to pull a fast one. England's opening match of the Champions Trophy was also the first of 26 meetings with the old enemy over the next few months. And if they weren't currently rubbish I'd suspect the Aussies were playing games.
...heroes. Funny how England cricket team can stop sucking donkey balls and win a one day international when the pressure is off because the 3 match series has been lost.
...reached. You'd think the rubbish currently being served up by those wearing the footballing three lions would mean English football is at it's lowest point. But no. It can reach further depths.
..'em. A little over a week away from a year before football crazy Brazil host their first World Cup tournament in 64 years and the poor old dears can't even beat England.
...“On The Run”. Bill Ruppert's latest Effectology video shows him recreating Pink Floyd's “On The Run” instrumental from their 1973 classic “Dark Side Of The Moon” album.
...Ireland. Had better things to do and after all they never watched me when I was crap. Quite frankly the thought of watching Ashley Cole leading England out with the captain's armband turned my stomach.
...Root. Yet again another England bowler stood on the podium collecting the man of the match award after skittling New Zealand out when they would have been in that position if Joe root hadn't saved England from a batting collapse.
...passione. One British cycling hero bowed out early with a bit of an understandable whimper another just underlined his greatness. As Mark Cavendish wins the red jersey in the 2013 Giro d'Italia.
...and defeat all evil. 4 minutes 49 seconds and David Lee Roth speaks a whole 14 words. Gotta be some sort of record.
...roars.Have to say I was rather glad Jonny Wilkinson's Toulon won the Heineken Cup.
